Additional Boot Argument Configuration
Open, Requires assessmentPublicFEATURE REQUEST


It would be extremely useful if it was possible to set boot arguments; for example something like:

set system boot-args "intel_idle.max_cstate=0 processor.max_cstate=1"

This would help in troubleshooting, as well as in lab environments where things like Spectre and Meltdown mitigations can severely hinder performance.
